It's all fun and games until your friend bails.

   

It was 1985, and while Mick and Bowie were dancing in the streets, I was (reluctantly) starting my paralegal career.


I say reluctantly because I was only trying to help a friend.


A friend who was practiced in the art of the impassioned plea and begged me to do something with her because she didn’t want to do it alone.


That 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 was enrolling in Santa Ana Community College’s Paralegal Program. We worked in a nearby law office. They had night classes. It all made sense on paper.

And then she bailed.


I had no plans to go to college after high school, but I found myself hooked. I took all the legal courses (I’d get to the General Ed portion of the program much later) and then promptly announced to my boss that I was now a paralegal and deserved a raise. (This was way before BPC § 6450, mind you.)


My boss (who agreed to the raise, btw) was a family law attorney. I loved working for him, but I’d watched his clients come unhinged one too many times.


He practiced law like Marvin Mitchelson, kept his dry bar stocked, and his cigarette lit (Mad Men didn’t have the corner on the drinking, smoking, and skirt-chasing market) but wasn’t so good at keeping the $20 words in a brief and out of client communications.


So, I changed things up a bit and started explaining the divorce process to clients in a non-lawyerly way. I prepared them for what should happen and what could derail the entire process. I created templates, intake forms, and FAQs, which relieved (some of) their anxiety, cut down on the phone calls, and minimized melt-downs.


And then one day it hit me.


I could start a business doing what I enjoyed most about my job: translating legalese to non-lawyers.


So, that’s what I did.


I write copy and content for attorneys who want approachable:


  ✔️Websites

  

  ✔️Bios

  

  ✔️About Me pages


  ✔️Email campaigns


  ✔️Blogs


For attorneys who want more fat retainer checks.


Hey, don’t get me wrong. I know plenty of lawyers can (and do) write for non-lawyers. Maybe you’re one of them.


But should you?


I mean, what could you do with that time?


The way I see it, your time is better spent practicing law. My time is better spent helping clients find you and understand why they need you.

What people are saying.

Jodi did a fantastic job creating the content for my website which is being built and for all my social media. She was able to capture who I am and what I wanted to say with only one conversation. Her creativity and bold words far exceeded what I could have completed on my own. She has such a creative flair and is too much fun to work with.


I would highly recommend Jodi for anyone that is looking to get their copy done with creativity and want results that exceed expectations.

Jodi knows who she is and what she does best.


Her personality shines through on the page! So impressed by her ability to convey messages clearly and confidently.


I highly recommend her and her work.

Jodi is a wondrously witty wordsmith. She has a natural talent to bring words and ideas together for absolute clarity.


I highly recommend Jodi for all your copywriting and editing needs.


She'll make you and your words shine bright like a diamond.

Jodi and I recently collaborated on a health-related article for a print publication in Scottsdale, AZ. The task was a very quick turnaround.

As a publicist, I secured the opportunity and Jodi jumped to tackle the assignment. The article was very well written, conversational, full of helpful information and an enjoyable read. There was absolutely no hand holding and zero corrections to be made.

I would highly recommend working with Jodi, especially if you want a final product that is perfect the way it is!

Real words for real people. That’s where it’s at.

When I’m not uncomplicating the complicated, you might find me:

  • Trekking barefoot on local beache

  •  Meeting friends at the   best  trail heads 

  •  Correctly guessing   who’s  gonna  get Chopped

  •   Walking on the woo side  

  • Shaking up a stone-cold dirty martini

  •  Laughing until my face hurts

  • Taking the occasional nap
